Barb Vogel
Pre-Kindergarten Teacher
New Market Elementary School


Welcome to Pre-Kindergarten!
We are going to have a fabulous year!!

I have been teaching for 27 years. I have taught head start colaboration, pre-kindergarten, kindergarten, first and second grade.  I have also worked as the literacy specialist for Infants and Toddlers of Frederick County,  literacy specialist for family partnership, and reading interventionalist for New Market Elementary. 

I got my degree from UMd in Zoology.  I was a geneticist for University of Maryland for 5 years, so I love science! But, I decided looking through a microscope all day was not for me... so I went back to school to get my certification in Early Childhood Education, and then my masters in Reading and Literacy.

I live on a farm in Union Bridge with my wonderful husband Floyd, and 2 great kids, Ty and Mia. We are an animal loving, vegetarian family! And so...we have lots of them!! Right now we have 4 horses, 2 ponies, 3 goats, 5 sheep, 2 donkeys,13 chickens, 4 ducks, 1 goose, 1 goldfish, 3 turtles, 2 birds, 2 dogs and 6 cats! and hopefully sometime soon....   a cow!!
